Opera Audio Wax Engine Turntable 

The CONSONANCE WAX Engine is a quite remarkable new turntable. There are more sensible design features that are beneficial to analogue playback in this turntable than those costing several times more.

Main bearing & Spindle

The WAX Engine has been updated to include the Well Tempered Lab "Zero Clearance" design platter bearing. This is in cooperation with our Well Tempered Lab partners.

Design philosophy-Rotational Stability of the spindle

The Well Tempered Lab spindle rotates in a teflon bearing with a triangular hole. The apex of the triangle is orientated towards the motor. This results in vanishingly low friction and a high degree of stability.

Design philosophy- Bearing Noise

The Well Tempered bearing uses a Teflon thrust bearing. The stainless steel spindle has a precision point and rests into a small hole in the Teflon thrust bearing to achieve very low noise.
 
The DC motor is a high quality Mabuchi with a patented DC servo supply. The tonearm is a new aluminium tonearm with cotton fibre internal damping.
Newly designed bearing system with precision machined cups encapsulating 4x tapered shafts in a gimbal fashion to control vibration and resonance in both vertical and horizontal motion whilst allowing secure tracking with even the most demanding of recordings. The anti-skate mechanism is also quite unique providing a constantly gentle anti-skate across the whole surface of the recording.
